In this sweetly romantic shoot, Calgary-based photographer and stylist Tara Whittaker brought to life a shoebox full of Cupid-approved ideas for a memorable Valentine’s Day wedding. Authentic vintage pieces were seamlessly interwoven with contemporary details, which freshened up a classic love-inspired palette; winter tulips replaced red roses, and playful macaron pops took the place of chocolates.
The warm flicker of pillar candles, housed in antiqued brass lanterns, was framed by clusters of loose flowers and foliage.
Black floral pumps were paired with a short-and-sweet pleated dress from Calgary’s best one-stop secondhand shop, A Vintage Affair, which carries more than 200 one-of-a-kind bridal gowns from the 1920s to the 1970s.
The beribboned bridal bouquet featured red tulips, white roses, scabiosa pods, eucalyptus, and lamb’s ear.
Yann Haute Patisserie provided a girly array of macarons in flavors like rose and raspberry. The delightful confections were decorated with sugar bows, blooms, and butterflies.
With just three ingredients, this frothy pink punch is easy to make in batches. Get the recipe here.
